Seventy tickets of a theater show were sold for Rs.8000. If the tickets were sold in denominations of Rs.125 and Rs.75, how many tickets of each

denomination were sold?


The Brainliest Answer!
Let the no. of 125-rupees ticket be X
So, no. of 75-rupees ticket be 70-X


So, no. of ₹125 tickets =55 and No. of ₹75 tickets = 15

Total number of tickets = 70
Let N be the number of tickets sold in denominations of Rs 125.
So 70 - N will be the number of tickets sold in denominations of Rs 75.

   Total proceedings from the tickets sale = Rs  N * 125 + (70 - N) * 75
                 = Rs  (50 * N + 5, 250)
                 = Rs 8, 000
   50 N + 5, 250 = 8, 000
     N = 2750/50 = 55

SO there were 55 tickets old in denominations of Rs 125 and 15 tickets of denominations of Rs 75.
